swollen lymph nodes in small of back
Feb 6, 2001

Dear Sirs, I have swollen lymph nodes in the small area of my back, tight stomach with belching and passing gases. HIV pos 2 weeks ago---is the the start of what to expect the rest of my life... Thank You, Concerned

Response from Dr. Young

Sorry to hear about your diagnosis. Your symptoms (especially the swollen nodes) should get better with time, particularly on antiretroviral therapies to lower your viral load and improve your immune function. BY
